As Tullio Campagnolo in 1933 founded his company in the town of Vicenza, it was probably - no sure - do not realize how far the development of his bicycle parts would ever go. From the first through the first Schnellspannnabe Parallelogrammschaltwerk to this sophisticated mechanical 11-speed drivetrain. The Campagnolo Record group was continuously developed and came to meticulous development work as a mature product on the market. The circuit uses the driver's commands to without delay in gear changes. Highest quality and advanced materials forming components which can convince entirely by appearance, feel, and not least functional.
Ergopower Ultra Shift Shift & Brake
Quality is easiest to find with his hands. Precise operating mechanism and ergonomic body and levers that make the difference, which raises the Ergopower units on an entirely separate level. The sensitive response of drivetrain and brakes provide control and security.
Ultra Torque - crank
The crank acts at first glance almost as a sculpture. The organic forms of the hollow carbon crank arms offer something for the eye and suggest a material-design of the crank. The aluminum shaft draws the lightweight construction potential of the crank from fully and also provides a high torsional stiffness. The bottom bracket is integrated directly on the shaft and has optimized USB ceramic bearings that have a superior smoothness. The chainrings this masterful crank possess a sophisticated shape of the teeth and switching aids. The drive rigidity in strong sprints and the gear changes underline the quality of the crank and the entire group.
The revised Capagnolo Record 11-speed rear derailleur is the product of many years of development in all experiences on switching mechanics and materials have been incorporated. The result is a rear derailleur, the supporting parts are made entirely of carbon to a maximum rigidity to achieve a low weight. The new shape allows the derailleur to move at a different angle, the result is a detailed guide on sprockets which in turn ensures better transmission of forces and low wear.
Absolute precision and unparalleled speed. The Record derailleur with Ultra Shift geometry guarantees associated with the crankset and Campagnolo chain the best Umwerferleistungen in any situation. The sophisticated mechanism and pure environment-reducing coating of parts decrease, during switching losses and also reduces the wear of the chain and guide plates.
Skeleton - Brakes
The demand for the best possible function is, of course, enforced at Campagnolo also in the braking systems. A perfected design of the brake arms leads to a high rigidity of the entire mechanism and thus to a high control and braking force. The front brake To simultaneously satisfy the lightweight do run as dual pivot system, in which the brake arms are controlled by two bearings. This principle allows a greater braking force. Because of physical open this high braking force can not be transferred to the road at the rear wheel, the simpler and lighter single-pivot design is on the rear brake, used. The reduction to a single bearing allows a much lighter construction, which still provides more than enough control and braking force for the rear wheel.
The Campagnolo cassettes for the Record powertrain offer 11 perfectly matched pinion for perfect shifting. The design is optimized for lightweight and durability out. So the 6 largest sprockets are each fixed in groups of 3 on an aluminum spider. By contrast, the smaller 5 pinion made to meet steel to the higher loads of pinions. The largest three sprockets are made of titanium in order to ensure the lowest possible weight.
Campagnolo optimized over years the own chains such that from this simplem bicycle part is a real high-tech product has become now. Specially shaped chain links, rivets and high-tech manufacturing steps make this an enormous difference! For maximum efficiency, the drive and at the same time minimal wear Campagnolo chains factory with PTFE - Teflon - coated.
